A man has written to Bishop David Oyedepo asking him to instruct one of his pastors, Rev. Kelvin Ugwuoke to leave his wife alone.
The man, Ifeanyi Kenneth Okpoko, has urged the Founder and General Overseer of Winners Chapel, to prevail on the pastor to desist from associating with his wife, Blessing Okpoko.
The couple, who are already enmeshed in an ongoing divorce case between Okpoko and Blessing, has taken another dimension, as the husband has written a letter dated 13 November, 2014 titled “Case of Adultery, Snatching of my Wife and Secret Marriage Engagement”.
The aggrieved husband, Okpoko alleged that Ugwuoke snatched his wife Blessing, who is an area manager in an old generation bank, took her to Dubai, where he allegedly married her secretly.
In the letter, Okpoko stated that he legally married Blessing, but he would later discover that she secretly got to married Ugwuoke, who is also a banker. He said after confronting her with the wedding photographs, she moved out to Ugwuoke’s home at Prime Water View Estate, Flat 8 in Lekki.
He said Blessing also reacted by filing a suit at a Lagos High Court seeking for the dissolution of the marriage to cover up her adultery. He also added that Blessing and Ugwuoke have been harassing him with police, and at a point, he was sent to prison in order to take over their joint property.
Okpoko stated that both Ugwuoke and Blessing are devoted ministers in Winners Chapel, adding that before she packed out of his house, she was a pastor in charge of House Fellowship in his house at Ajao Estate in Lagos.
The jilted husband also stated in the letter that Ugwuoke and Blessing were lovers in Kano before Ugwuoke dumped her to marry other women. He revealed that he got married to Blessing in 2001, adding that the marriage broke up in April 2013 when she lied to him that she was going to Dubai for her banking job only to discover that she went to hold a clandestine wedding ceremony.
Okpoko said when she returned from Dubai, her behaviour totally changed, as she started picking quarrels all the time until information about the marriage and photographs got to him.
In the letter to Oyedepo, he stated: “Sir I have been subjected to mental and psychological trauma just to force me to untimely death. Ironically, they are ministers in your church which calls for your intervention.”
He also attached photographs taken by Ugwuoke and Blessing both here in Nigeria and Dubai.
Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of Winners Chapel, is, however, yet to respond to the letter by Okpoko.
